How to modify INPA K+DCAN Cable to work for BMW new and old?

Here is a BMW INPA K+DCAN USB Interface modification solution for sharing! It will rework the cable to do ALL BWW E series newer or older cars, not only the supposed BMW 1998-2008!

Note: BMW older vehicles require the pin 7 and 8 to be bridged to work. But BMW 3/2007 and later require pin 7 and 8 to be separate. So in this guide we need a switch to make a balance!

Tools needed:
1. Small Philip screwdriver
2. Micro on/off switch (can be two prongs or three)
3. Soldering gun
4. Some type of glue gun or glue adhesive
5. Something to make a hole in the plastic cover for the switch
6. And most important tool: BMW K+DCAN Cable
Locate pin 8 which will have a number on the side of the board. One side will have the digit 1 and the other digit 8
Once you locate pin 8, that’s the pin we will be using as well as the next one over. If you bought a 2 prong on/off switch, connect each pin 7 and 8 with a separate wire and then use the soldering gun and connect each wire to the micro on/off switch.
If you bought a switch with three prongs, connect the middle and one of the ends, doesn’t matter which one, so there will be one prong end not used. (Or just snip off the 3rd end to make it easier to solder)
Neatly place the wires snug so that the plastic cover can be closed without anything preventing it.
Make a closed seal and screw in the 4 Philip head screws in their respected holes.
Note which position is on and which is off by some type of label on the outside of the cover.
It’s done! Now you can use this 14.5 INPA K+DCAN Cable for all BMW E series cars!

confirmed to work perfect with opcom 2010 or 2014 software

Opel Opcom basic information:

  1. OPCOM is a special PC-based diagnostic interface especially for OPEL.
  2. Software Version:2010/2014  Firmware Version: 1.65/1.70
  3. DO NOT update opcom online; otherwise, the device would be damaged!

New OPCOM 2010/2014V Software Function:

  1. It covers almost all Opel cars, incl. new cars with CAN-BUS based diagnostic, such as Vectra-C, Astra-H, Zafira-B.
  2. The program allows users to read out and clear fault codes, shows you live data and perform output test.
  3. The program supports many control units, like Engine, Automatic Transmission, ABS, Airbag, Engine Cooling module,
    Instrument Cluster, Electronic Climate Control, Body Control Unit, etc.
  4. Since Opel cars adopt many PINs in the OBD connector, the diagnostic interface works as a multiplexer,
    and users need select the appropriate pin for communication. PIN3, PIN7, PIN8, PIN12 = Serial Link (ISO9141, KW81, KW82, KWP2000)
  5. Fault codes will be shown with all information available:

Full fault code text description:

1) Full status information (Present, Not present, Intermittent)
2) Users can print out, save, or copy the fault codes to any other application.
From the fault codes window, users can go directly to the measuring blocks window.
3) The program shows measuring block information on many control module, users can choose anything from the list on your own.
4) The program is capable of showing 8 measuring block parameter simultaneously.
The sample rate is depends mostly on the communication protocol.
For example, the older system like Omega-B X 25 DT Engine (ISO-9141-2) can be very slow during communication, while the newer Multec or Bosch units are faster (using KWP-2000), and the newest CAN based control units are very fast!

Users can also run output tests on many controllers.

HSCAN - Dual-wire, High Speed CAN-BUS, 500 kbps
MSCAN - Dual-wire, Medium Speed CAN-BUS, 95 kbps
SWCAN - Single-wire, Low Speed CAN-BUS, 33.3 kbps


What’s the difference bettween BMW coding and programming

As known ISTA/P is able to perfom coding and programming shown as following picture. But a question arise, what’s the difference bettween BMW coding and programming? Go on reading…
ISTA/P session

What is Coding?

It is a process utilized by BMW, which groups system specific operating requirements (Data) together and then assigns a label/code to each of these groups of data. The various groups of data are all pre-loaded into system specific “codable” control modules, along with a basic set of operating instructions (Program).

There are various types of operating requirements such as; O2 sensors, emissions controls, fuel type, Manual or Auto transmission.

The procedure of assigning one specifically labeled group of data to the operating program of a specific control module/component is referred to as “coding”. Coding allows a specific set of data already present in the module to be selected.

A “codable” control module has a basic operating program already installed along with several specific variations of operating data. The coding process allows a specific set of operating data to be assigned to the basic operating program of that module/component, with respect to its specific application.

Coding can be performed for some systems/components via ISTA/P or the older DIS/Plus/GT1/SSS device. By entering a variant code via the device, selecting customer specific operational settings from a list of available features (VKM) or automatically by selecting a specific coding process.

Note: Codable control modules/components are system specific, which means that not all control modules are codable.

What is Programming?
It is a process utilized by BMW to load application/system specific operating instructions. Programming loads control functions instructions into a specific control module.

(Program) into a module/component which already has the systems operating requirements (Data) installed, plus it can be used as a means of updating data and operating instructions previously installed in a control module. Basic programmable control modules have a pre-defined set of operating data already installed which allows the module to be fairly generic until a specific operational program is installed.

The ability to program a module is limited to the number of times it has already been programmed and the hardware version of the control module itself.
What is I-level (or Integration Level?)

The ECU’s in a BMW are not meant to be updated individually, rather as a collection which BMW tested and knows all work fine together. The collective version number of all programmed ECU’s is called the I-level, or Integration level (German: I-stufe). The term I-level was adopted by BMW around the year 2004 and applies only to lines which were in development/production in 2004 or after (E60, E70, E90, etc.).

The I-level is a set of numbers that looks like E89X-11-09-410. The first part represents the chassis group, which is followed by the year and month of the release and a build number for that release. So, E89X-11-09-410 would mean an E80/E90, 09/2011, version 410.

You will often see a set of two I-levels, something like E89X-05-10-026, E89X-11-09-410. In this case the first set is called the Factory I-level, or the level with which the car left the factory, and the second the Dealer Organization I-level, or the current version programmed by the dealer.

So the Schwaben scan tool I bought is Foxwell NT510

As the title suggests, I boughtECS Tuning's Schwaben ProScan Tool (now also called Foxwell NT510). I've seen them mention it in a load of threads here, and the tool has NO reviews anywhere, and no one has any info.

Given that it's $200, I thought I'd do a good deed and maybe help somebody out.
(Schwaben tool is confirmed the same as Foxwell NT510, the factory, software, user manual... All the same except the shape. So, i think it’s the marketing strategy. And it’s wise to buy Foxwell NT510, $50 saved!)

I'm going to cover a few topics:
1. First Impressions
2. Usability
3. Features I've tried

I have an R58, so I'll be able to answer questions readily about it but of course it'll apply to R56, etc. This weekend, I'll use it on my girlfriend's R50.

(all with the Schwaben tool is also gonna happen on Foxwell tool NT510)

Part 1
So, my first impressions, first.
Holding the Schwaben tool. I have large hands.
It seems well constructed. Has a rubberized surround that looks like it'll survive a drop or thirty. The cable leading to the OBD plug is about 42" long, which for my Coupe is enough to bring the tool just outside the door, when the door is shut. Not a problem to use inside, at either seat. There is a port on the bottom for a mini-USB cable, and a microSD slot on the left side. (It came with an unbranded 4Gb class 6 card)

It includes a zippered case with an embroidered Schwaben logo. It's OK, I guess. It's marginally padded and seems to be made of the same material my old gradeschool backpack was. Includes an elastic strap to hold the scanner and a pocket on the flap for the USB cable and the microSD reader also included. I'm nonplussed, nothing particularly special about it.

The first thing I actually did with it was plug in the included USB cable and see what happens. (I used my Windows 8.1 laptop) It powered on quickly.

Powered on and on the default screen.

Next, I installed the Foxwellsoftware called FoxScanner. It had me create a username and password, registration data (address, etc). I'll be honest, I got it straight from Foxwell (the actual manufacturer) and I didn't even bother with the CD.

A bit of a problem... As soon as I inserted the microSD card, Windows Defender had a FIT! It claimed malware was present in the autorun file.

With that mess out of the way, I registered the scanner and checked for updates. I'm pleased to say that it was easy to do, pop in the card, check a box, hit update. There was a couple updates available, and very recent too. Time will tell how frequently and what quality the updates are.

I clicked the card back in its slot, and brought the scanner out to my car. To connect it, just plug it in to the OBD2 port and it'll light up. You can use it as a regular OBD2 reader if you want (I think; haven't tried it yet) or select the MINI logo.

So, at this point it's rather late here and I need to sleep. My next post I'll actually get to what everyone wants to know, "what does it actually do." (Cliff's notes: It's INPA, but far easier to use and in your hand.) In the mean time, if anyone has questions, or wants me to check a feature for them, I will.

Part 2

Alright, time for part two.
that the scanner is like INPAcable- for those that don't know, INPA is a diagnostic tool typically used with a laptop and a special OBD2 cable. It can be tricky to set up (I have used it on my R58 and an R50) but it's capable of an amazing array of diagnostics and controls.
This scanner is SO MUCH EASIER to use than INPA. 

Plug in the scanner and it'll turn on, bringing you to the main screen. Speaking of screen, it is not a touch-screen. Navigation is done using the soft-touch buttons, which feel like... one of those universal TV remote controls with the comically large buttons. I had no issues navigating; all button presses react quickly and there's no lag that I can detect.
Once it's on (again, takes maybe two seconds to turn on) you choose your model (in this case, MINI - it also does BMW, and, inexplicably, Rolls Royce) At that point, you get the VIN, either through an automatic scan (my preference), entering it manually, or "manual selection" (which I haven't tried). 

This is my car, there are many like it, but this is mine.

With the scan complete, you can scan for active modules, (Auto Scan), directly select your control unit, or enter the Service menu.

The auto scan polls a list of options your car may or may not have, and it takes a while. I think the full manual-select list has 39 control units; my car had 12 units respond - it takes a short while to scan since each unit is polled for response and any errors.

a sampling of the full code list

A sample of my control units' list and response

If there is a fault reported, it will tell you how many and you can read the error, such as these in my TPMS system:

I have winter tires without TPMS sensors.

You can also do a "quick erase" which goes through all control units and eliminates all codes. This includes stored codes, which other scan tools won't see.

Each control unit has its own menu:

Each control unit has a menu similar to this. Option 6 is my favorite.

Here's my ABS pump:

So information. Much datas. Wow.

OK, that's enough.

Part 3

I'll dial down in to a control unit and bend it to my will.
The procedure is the same for any control unit with an option to activate. First, you have to drill down to your component and choose "component activation". I think it can be accessed more quickly using the manual control unit selection, but this time I used the automatic scan and selected the unit that way. Either way works, and it's nice to be able to skip the scan if you know which unit you want to try. (a touch I appreciate)

Some control units have several layers deep worth of control, while others may have only one. For example, the ABS unit has like one option, whereas the radio has at least 6 top-level options and several levels below most of those options. It depends on the complexity of the control.

The RAD2-BO User Interface menu (the radio, in other words)

I chose it because it is an example that has lots of options. Let's poke it...

These work like you'd think. Except I'm not willing to try GERMAN STUFF IN ALL CAPS.

Here's a sample of what you'll get when you select "Turn On Radio":

All individual control screens look like this.

That's just one option. There's so many more that I can't list everything. Just about all the diagnostics you could think to run, it can do. For example, have a buzz on songs with high bass levels but you can't tell which speaker it is? Turn on your radio to that song, and activate only one speaker at a time until you find which one buzzes.

One warning, though - DON'T activate the PDC beeper. Even if your car doesn't have PDC (parking distance control) it can still make the noises. If you activate it, it will stay on until you finally find the option to turn it off, and it will annoy you. It won't even turn off if you remove the key from the ignition. (this could be easily patched, I think, by adding a "deactivate" option to the PDC-activate option. All that's there now is "Activate")

OK, there's more to cover, including CBS resets, interval control, and engine parameter trimming (you can even control your engine idle RPM in various circumstances...)

The final note- now no need waste $50 more to get ECS Schwaben tool. just save it to buy candies for your daughter :D Foxwell NT510 is what i really wanna share with you. The same tools with different names definitely is the trick from the manufacture to make more benefit.


Foxwell NT510 same as Schwaben tool from ECS

Got home late and I had an Foxwell box staring at me on my whatever you call it a desk. So far I'm really impressed, this is not junk, this is a dealer OE professional tool, quality is bang drop rugged shock resistant, the display is a very good quality TFT

Just updated the software, I can tell you guys strait up this is a INPA and BT Tool all in one plus more. No VIN locks, you can actually SAVE VIN with their associated modules.

It does a damn good job of identifying the car by scanning the VIN and it will pull all the "specifics" about your car.

The hard part is having it scan all your modules in the beginning for the first time. Better have a battery charger. After it has completed scanning all modules it maps them out and you save them to your VIN.

Ok, I just went through just about everything on this device. It is, without doubt, very similar to the BT Tool and INPA in regards to enabling/disabling modules, clearing shadow codes, scanning and clearing modules codes and resetting adaptations.

Instead of searching for errors for the overall vehicle health you can just have it scan each module automatically for error codes and address whatever it is.

Keep in mind this is a diagnostic and maintenance tool, so don't compare it to COBB or MHD flashers which have superior capabilities for channel logging in which MHD is by far the best at doing. This scan tool lacks logging all 6 cylinders, and this is a must for the BMW community, however, not a need if its already being done with the flasher devices.

Non of the flashers have the feature to log and access the TCU performance for 6AT/DKG/DCT transmissions. I am sure MHD can add these, but right now not available in MHD but available in this tool

I was unable to test out the ABS-DSC modules, it kept freezing. I sent a ticket in on this problem with it. On my Mini Cooper it works flawlessly though.

Currently the "Service" option is not available, where you can reset service counters, and manipulate dates for service due dates or to see if your coming near a due maintenance. The BT Tool has this. This scan stool is setup for it but the software has not been implemented yet

There is no coding availability. The hardware DOES support it, but there is no software support at this time. The only things that can be done with Injectors is enabling disabling for whatever reason for testing. I will still go back over the tool again to confirm hoping I didn't miss something as its a lot of stuff to comb through, but I'm pretty sure no coding support at this time.

I will still follow up with a video walk through, it definitely better than getting a BT tool that locks VIN and not progressive about their software or hassling with INPA which is a challenge to use for those who lack in certain PC skills. However, Foxwelltool NT510 is very supportive and active in the community so I am sure with some push this scanner will be up to par with the community's needs.

I would also like to correct myself, the expected update has not been released yet. The update I ran was an older update from 2015. So all of this is probable going to be addressed in the expected update that was mentioned before.

The final tip- Foxwell tool is Schwaben tool

I think there is no difference between the Schwaben tool from ECSthe gray body tool sold under the model 14020sch and this NT510 http://www.eobdtool.co.uk/wholesale/foxwell-nt510-multi-system-scanner.html 

From what I can tell, the button layout, LCD, menus and functions appear to be the same. The manuals for both are also identical. 

The Foxwell tool has been good to me on other items and I understand they need to mark up what they sell to stay in business. It seems like ECS is being shady and undercutting their distributors. Changing body colors, using a different model sticker, then marketing it at a higher price, is lame IMHO.
